PARMA, Ohio — The Cuyahoga County Board of Health has confirmed there are now 338 cases of COVID-19 in the county, a number that does not include cases in the City of Cleveland.

The onset date of illness for the new cases was from March 20-28, with the age of patients infected ranging from 14 to 93 years old.

There are now four coronavirus deaths, 2 males and 2 females, in the county, with the age of patients ranging from 70 to 91 years old.

The county said testing for COVID-19 is still reserved for high-risk patients in the county, as rapid testing is not yet available, according to the Cuyahoga County Board of Health.

Over the weekend, the county received dozens of calls from the public about large groups gathering and from businesses trying to find the best way to keep their employees safe.

The county on Monday also said they are responding to 312 complaints from the public about non-essential businesses that remain open. Cuyahoga County Board of Health Commissioner Terry Allan said craft, clothing, furniture, gaming, sports, beauty, vape and CBD stores are not essential.
